The Rock was at UFC 119 last night, and they caught up to him for a few questions. Some wrestling fans may take what he said a little sacrileges. He made a comment that gave the impression that he would have rather done this than wrestling.
I know I may be over re-acting, but when one of the biggest legends in pro wrestling dismisses what made him famous. You can’t help feel that he is being a bit ungrateful. They also asked the question he is always asked. “Will you ever return to pro wrestling?”
I provided a few highlights and a link in case you want to hear the whole thing. Here are some of the things the Rock had to say.
"There's no question about it," when asked if he would have done MMA. "I love this sport and the thought of competing in the Octagon is something I would have loved to have done, but I went another route. I'm too handsome, I went to Hollywood."
When asked if he would ever return to pro wrestling.
"Na, I don't see that man, I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish in the business," Johnson said. "Brock Lesnar was the last guy I wanted to wrestle. I had the privilege of wrestling him all around the world, and now the privilege of watching him kick ass and humbly dominate the UFC."
